I am doing better, I even helped to stain the deck today! Work starts on Monday with home office days for Monday and Tuesday (to get through the 800 emails sitting in my in box and to get report from 2 other consultants about corporate communications while I was off and what transpired in the offices that I cover. Then 3 days in Grand Rapids! Due to my health issues over the summer and the speed of which defending preliminary exams occur my chair suggested that I take a leave for the semester. I still will work on my prelims, I just don't have access to a number of perks of being a student. I think it will help me get it done.
I am starting the P90X workout program tomorrow, well, the warm up to it! Exercise has to become my routine now.
